More Kelson

While sat watching paint dry, I thought I'd better do something else.

So fixing another length of kelson to the bottom was in order.

Due to the boat having a steel bottom, I decided the way to do this was, to weld 2 x 2 angle irons to the bottom and bolt the 2in thick Pitch pine kelson to the angles. This would then give me the required 4ins for the depth of floor and, also, give the bottom some rigidity and allow any water free access without touching the timber.
